Peter Purves reads Una McCormack’s tale of the First Doctor and Steven, Peace in Our Time. The Doctor and Steven must prevent alien intervention in British military history prior to the Great War. A lot of the story is told from the perspective of a domestic servant, Ruby, and McCormack does her usual strong job of displaying character with her writing.

Una McCormack does her usual strong job

Purves is always a delight as a reader, and McCormack has a good sense of the voice of Steven, one of my favourite companions. The story does admittedly feel a little slight, but it was an enjoyable experience nonetheless.

Peace in Our Time (by Una McCormack; read by Peter Purves) was released by Big Finish Productions in December 2019.
